In recent years, Synthwave music has been gaining popularity. Newcomer musicians venture into this genre that is highly influenced by vintage movie soundtracks and retro video game themes. There’s no doubt the 80s were the best decade for entertainment in many aspects. One of Chile’s emerging electronic producers to date has to be René Lepus. Happily, he’s an artist that is bringing back to the music scene unique rhythms and interesting drum samples from that era. His newest single is a gem called “Dejar Atrás”, translated into English as “Leave Behind”. Hard-charging beats and vocoder-filtered vocals are some of the elements that I loved about this fresh tune. According to the artist, the song serves as a form of escapism. Sometimes, I think the best way to run away from problems is by listening to some good music. Get lost with René and enjoy his new track!
